Christmas is rapidly approaching and you will not be surprised that #1 in the SHS list of Most covered songs you will find Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht! sung for the first time on Christmas Eve in 1818 by the authors of the song Joseph Mohr and Franz Gruber in the Nikolaus-Kirche in Oberndorf in Austria. So this is almost exactly 200 years ago to date.
The work is sung all over the world and we have 25 adaptations in the SHS database in all the major languages except for Chines or Japanese......
I just wonder how many covers we will have by Christmas Eve 2018...........
